Epi Ingredients’ latest innovation finalist for the World Dairy Innovation Awards 2020

French dairy ingredients expert, Epi Ingredients, is very pleased to announce that its commitment to driving innovation with on-trends concepts and ingredients has been rewarded with SoCrispies by being selected as one of the finalists for “Best Dairy Ingredients” in FoodBev’s World Dairy Innovation Awards. SoCrispies is a “revolutionary” ingredient that reinvents the way to consume dairy and more specifically, dairy proteins. This extremely versatile crispy protein puff was co-developed with a company specialized in the extrusion process and is obtained through a patent-pending technology from 100 % dairy protein. It is clean-label, and, thanks to a neutral flavour, it can be used in a variety of applications like bars packing in both the crunch and the protein content.

The award judges were looking for innovative ingredients and products that not only provided strong consumer benefits such as nutrition, convenience, pleasure, versatility and more but also demonstrated being developed with sustainability in mind. According to the producer, SoCrispies delivers on all accounts. With a combination of nutrition, functionality and versatility, these protein crisps will allow brands to wow consumers with new protein-fortified products offering an elevated sensory experience and a high protein content all in one.
